About the group
In the research group, we are working with mathematical theories, experimental measurements using laser methods in the Hydrodynamics Laboratory, numerical methods and computations of such waves, flows and their impact. We work with model equations from theoretical physics, like variants of the KdV- and Schrödinger equations, other partial differential equations, integral equations and Green functions. We work with finite element methods (FEniCS) and computational methods in fluid mechanics with simulations of single- and multiphase flows including the motion of free boundaries like surfaces and internal waves. We work with turbulence modelling (Large Eddy Simulations) and through the 4DSpace project we are now even investigating turbulence in space.
Local collaboration with Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, Institute for Energy Research, The Norwegian Defense Research Establishment and Simula Research Laboratory. Collaboration on joint master and PhD course on Offshore Wind Power with Danish Technical University in Lyngby. Collaboration with several universitites in Europe (primarily University of Dundee, UK, University of St. Andrews, UK, Universidad de Alcalá, Sp and Ecole Centrale Marseille, Fr) and USA (MIT, Cornell University, Brown, Penn State, UCSD).
